Hello. I am the Location Leader for ERC's Wausau,
Marshfield, and Stevens Point offices. My training includes
an MSW degree from Loyola University of Chicago. I also
completed specialized post-graduate training in marriage and family
therapy. Most clients find me fairly easy to converse with
and feel that I am a good listener. I also have a good sense
of humor and this helps clients to relax in our work
together. I normally like to include other family members
when indicated to address relationship and mental health
issues. I particularly enjoy working with couples.
Other clinical areas of interest include family therapy, grief and
loss, depression and anxiety, stress, faith issues, and work
related problems. I am also trained in EMDR therapy, which is
an approved treatment for trauma. In 2013, I completed a
certificate program in coaching and enjoy working with leaders on
work and career related concerns.

Most of us, when we are facing difficulties or trying to bring
about change in our lives, do better with some outside
assistance. I believe that you are the expert on your own
life. My job as a counselor is to use my knowledge, skills and
experience to support and challenge you to find more useful ways to
navigate in your world. I have 27+ years of experience working with
individuals, couples and families in a variety of settings. My
training includes a Master of Divinity degree from McCormick
Theological Seminary and a Master of Social Work degree from the
University of Minnesota, as well as specialized training in Family
Systems Theory. Some special areas of interest for me are marriage
and partner relationships, parenting, workplace issues, depression,
anxiety, grief/loss, life transitions, spirituality/faith issues,
and effective leadership for managing change.
I hold a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree
in mental health community counseling. I have worked with children,
adolescents, adults, couples, and families in both individual and
group settings. My experience ranges from a community clinic,
corrections-based setting, and substance abuse clinic. Other areas
of interest include: anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, anger
management, family conflict, parenting, trauma, and grief.
I believe in cognitive-behavioral, supportive, strengths-based,
solution-focused, and dialectical therapy models. I also believe
that my experiences and values have made me into an open-minded,
nonjudgmental, and culturally aware counselor.
